Robert - Age 16, violist

I have been playing for 3 years. 

When I grow up, I want to be a renowned and well-known musician. 

I enjoy music because it fulfills my purpose in life to make something music.

I think I can make a difference in the world or in my community by making beautiful music for people and simultaneously raising worldly issues through music.
